Student Engagement Wows F.P. Hannah Kindred and her Faculty Partner, Dr. Barry Lambert, ate dinner and then later created a Learning Community poster with twenty seven of Hannah’s residents on October 24th! Hannah and her residents talked with Dr. Lambert about their goals, interests and priorities. Dr. Lambert said, “I have a new found faith in the Faculty Partner program.” Hannah and Dr.
Lambert’s casual interactions with residents represent the goals of the Faculty Partner program. Their work engaging the residents and the high attendance during the program resulted in a positive outcome for everyone involved.

A Different Perspective On December 2, Faryn Ragsdale and her Faculty Partner, Jean Montgomery, joined 12 of their residents at Mrs. Montgomery’s house in Dublin. When asked to describe her event, Faryn stated, “Our F.P., Mrs. Montgomery, invited us to her house in Dublin, where she cooked
dinner. We roasted marshmallows and made S’mores.” She also invited people from her church. We went around and discussed where we were from and our majors, so we were able to interact outside of the classroom and relax before a stressful and busy upcoming
week of finals!” A home cooked meal in a faculty member’s home is a treat for residents and the work it took to plan this event is appreciated.
